Abstract: low speed frontal impact is the most regularly occurring scenario in the real world driving. The bumper which are basically designed to absorb crash energy and crush during high speed impact need to actually behave more rigid at low speed impacts else the damage caused to bumper is very high and will add to cost of repair and replacement. To address this issue the IIHS provides the guidelines for evaluation of bumper during low speed impacts upto 10 kmph. On IIHS guidelines, multiple bumper design configuration with weld information and analysed the performances at low speed frontal impact with energy observed and displacement point of view.
